    Hey Everybody,

    i would like to know if it's possible (without a custom AddOn) to show a small icon in the message_user_info template if a user has birthday.

    I thought since there is the option to promote a user (or to show a notification) if it's his special day there should be some kind of helper in the template.

    It would be cool of you could help me out with this.

    Thanks a lot!

    The simplest way would be to create a user group and user group promotion with this crierion:

    Then apply styling/a banner to the birthday user group.

    Thanks brogan, that's what i thought, but is there a way to undo that user group promotion? The user stays in the birthday group even so his birthday was yesterday, right?

    Promotions and demotions are automatic.
